ABOUT UMUTUZO LODGE
Umutuzo lodge is a place dedicated to serenity in Rwanda.
Ideally placed on one hectare of land with a beautiful slope,
the lodges have a breathtaking view of Lake Kivu while maintaining the necessary privacy.
Built in natural materials (wood, lava stones, traditional bricks, ...), the lodges offer a space of well-being.
The 60 meters of connection to the lake Kivu, with its beach, create a feeling of infinity and tranquility.
Still under construction, the project should be completed by November 2024.
Even if everything is done to minimize the impact,
it is very likely that you will encounter workers and hear certain construction-related noises.
The last ten kilometers to reach Umutuzo lodge is a dirt road
currently under construction to soon be a new macadamized road.
The quality of this road may vary depending on the progress of the works and the dry or rainy seasons.
We suggest you choose a vehicle suitable for this type of road (4x4/4WD).
We can also provide you with a driver or pick you up on this route (Nkomero)
just before starting the road under construction.
You can also reach Umutuzo lodge by boat either via Gisenyi (Rubavu) or via Kibuye (Karongi)
To do this, we invite you to visit our location page.
